About me
Hi I'm Dave Leonard, a freelance Illustrator and designer based in London available for freelance projects and contract work. Having spent almost a decade working full-time in advertising, information design and fast moving content studios for national and global brands, receiving awards from the Drum and CMA's before going freelance. BadLeprechaun.com was established as an outlet for my own brand of image making and design. I have worked on a wide array of projects in many different mediums. Whether it be static or moving, in print or on-screen I am as comfortable applying design thinking to mostly any situation. I believe in championing quality, craft and creativity, with a strong foundation in sketching and research following through an adaptable process to the final high quality output.
